Teeth Whitening Q & A

What is teeth whitening?

The confidence that comes along with knowing that you have bright teeth when you smile is priceless. It makes meeting people and engaging in social situations more comfortable. However, even with proper oral care, many people want a little extra help making their teeth shine a bit brighter. 

There are several teeth whitening products available, but they all have the same goal: to enhance the appearance of your teeth by making them whiter and brighter. While there are small differences between the products, they all work by bleaching your teeth to enhance their appearance. 

What teeth whitening options are available?

While there are numerous gels, pastes, strips, and procedures, there are two main categories that you may be considering for teeth whitening. The team at Bay Dental Group offers professional and convenient tooth whitening treatments. While some people like the take-home products, there are some advantages to having your teeth whitened by a professional at the office as well. 

What are the advantages of professional in-office whitening? 

For starters, the concentration of the bleaching solution is much stronger when it is done by a professional. This allows you to get your teeth much brighter in a smaller amount of time. Certain techniques such as heating and light can also be used in addition to the bleaching agent, meaning greater whitening power in a quicker time frame. In addition, having a professional whiten your teeth gives you peace of mind knowing that you will get the best results possible in a safe manner. 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is safe for most people. However, it is a good idea to speak with the experts at Bay Dental Group before starting any teeth whitening program so that you can be sure that it is appropriate for your needs. Sometimes, tooth sensitivity can occur as a result of teeth whitening, but if it happens it resolves quickly.
